I had a very fun and productive day in the kitchen yesterday making some nut butter (that almost killed my Vitamix! YIKES!), a tasty mango, grape and kiwi balsamic salad for a very special birthday celebration, double chocolate chip cookies that weren't really cookies in the end and these DELICIOUS mushroom beet burgers that were a HUGE success!
Seriously! How pretty are these layers?? What's not so pretty is the pink paste that results once the blades do their work.
And thanks to these tasty buggers, dinner last night was SO frickin' tasty, not to mention downright beautiful! My freshly made mushroom beet burgers on top of a massive romaine leaf topped with avocado, tomatillo, cucumber, pickles and a few dollops of a balsamic mango beet salad then drizzled with some more balsamic with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and freshly ground black pepper. Mine had some drips of Sriracha for some extra heat. Talk about flavor packed!
